What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage, or MLD, is a gentle, pain-free treatment that stimulates a malfunctioning or fatigued lymphatic system.
Maintaining good lymphatic system health is crucial as it helps restore its condition when compromised due to surgery, injury or illness. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) therapy can be beneficial in such cases, provided there is no infection in the body.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage’s primary goal is to improve or restore the drainage and transport system that is impaired or slowed down. Most lymphatic systems are very close to the body’s surface, meaning MLD techniques require less pressure than a regular massage.
MLD activates the parasympathetic nervous system, naturally reducing stress and hormone activity. This means MLD is profoundly relaxing, as it calms the nervous system, reduces pain and restores balance. MLD massage helps strengthen the immune system.
